This guide will provide an overview to essential skills for success in your course, including using RefWorks, selecting peer-reviewed articles, crafting a literature review, crediting sources and referencing in APA style.

What is Cochrane Library?

Cochrane Library is a collection of databases that contain independent evidence to inform healthcare decision making. The Library contains over 5,000 systematic reviews (which summarize results of healthcare studies/controlled trials) and over 650,000 other data records, covering clinical trials, methods, technology and economic evaluations. Cochrane Library is a set of three databases, each with their own purpose:

  • Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews

  • Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL)

  • Cochrane Clinical Answers

You can access all of these resources through the Libraries website at the link below:

What is Campbell Collaboration?

According to its website, "the Campbell Collaboration is an international social science research network that produces high quality, open and policy-relevant evidence syntheses, plain language summaries and policy briefs." In other words, like the Cochrane Library, the Campbell Collaboration produces, supports, and shares systematic reviews related to social interventions.
